Caffeine Calculator 3.0: Caffeine In Starbucks Tea

November 22, 2019

Starbucks Teas Caffeine

How do you figure out how much caffeine you are consuming?

You just look on the label of your drink or maybe on the Starbucks website, right?

That works, but it’s a hassle, and it's not easy to find caffeine info for all drinks. And, they might list the caffeine for a medium, but you’re having a large.

And what about when you’re brewing at home?

For these reasons, we decided to update The Caffeine Calculator to now include TWO great tools.

We want you to have a quick and easy way to look up how much caffeine is in your cup of tea...whether you're brewing at home or buying on the go (we at Eco-Cha even grab a cup of Starbucks tea from time to time). 

So...

...we’ve added caffeine in Starbucks tea info to the Calculator

Now you can compare caffeine in loose leaf tea brewed at home with caffeine in your teas on the go.

Here’s what’s new…

The Basic Caffeine Calculator

Caffeine in Starbucks Tea

Starbucks has a few tasty teas (we've even visited the farm Taiwan Starbucks get their Oriental Beauty from). BUT, if you want caffeine information you’ll have to search through the Starbucks Website Menu

And that can be time consuming.

To help you with this we’ve added the most popular Starbucks teas to the easy to use drop-down on the caffeine calculator.

So whenever you want to know how much caffeine is in your tea…just scroll and click. It Looks like this…

Eco-Cha Caffeine Calculator

You’ll see a menu to select your tea, the serving size, and at the bottom the amount of caffeine in your cup.

Here's how you select your tea (and notice all the new teas!) 

Caffeine Calculator with Starbucks Teas

We’ve kept all the loose leaf teas included before, but added teas like the Starbucks Chai Tea Latte, Teavana Chai Tea, and the Matcha Green Tea Latte. 

Because we’re including ready to drink take out teas, this calculator is simple: tea type, serving size, and caffeine amount. Just click and go! 

Advanced Tea Caffeine Calculator

Now for the home brewers…

Of course we still have the advanced caffeine tool for the loose leaf tea lovers.

If you haven’t used it before, you'll want to check out the complete guide

But as a quick refresher. You get to choose tea type, serving size, AND steep number! 

Advanced Caffeine Calculator

Conclusion

Your feedback is what has helped improve these caffeine tools. So thank you, and keep it coming! You told us number of steeps mattered, you told us to-go teas mattered. Tell us what else would be helpful and we'll do our best to make it happen! 

What’s next…

For the Caffeine Calculator we’re going to add more teas, including more loose-leaf and some off the shelf bottled teas. If it's out there we aim to add it. This will take some time though as there's so much caffeine information on the web and we verify accuracy for each tea we add. 

For the Advanced Caffeine Calculator we’re working on a really cool feature that will allow you to choose the amount of tea your brewing! So soon you’ll be able to chose tea type, serving size, steep number, AND the amount of tea you're using.

If you like these tools, please share them on Facebook, with your friends, and link to us here. That really helps us to know what we’re doing is helpful! 

So, what do you think of the new and improved Caffeine Calculator with Caffeine in Starbucks Tea

Festive decorations abound everywhere you look, and Taiwan was no exception. Here is what things looked like on the ground from Bamboo Mountain (Zhushan), Taiwan.

Competition Grade Wenshan Baozhong Tea brewed on table
Competition Grade Wenshan Baozhong Tea Tasting Notes | Eco-Cha Tea Club

February 12, 2021

Batch 63 of the Eco-Cha Tea Club was harvested in November 2020, processed, and then sorted to remove stem material and any discolored leaves in preparation for the winter 2020 competition and the New Taipei City Farmers's Association.

The distinctive quality of Baozhong Tea is that the leaves are shuffled well to induce uniform oxidation, but they are only minimally rolled. This keeps their physical composition in tact. The leaves are not damaged by pressure rolling. This locks in a fresh, green quality that put Baozhong Tea in a category of its own.

Upon arrival, we were immediately led to the tasting table where there were two bowls of brewed tea leaves on the tea tray with less than 30mL of cold tea in each. We were ordered to taste them without any introduction to what they were. We immediately recognized them as freshly produced Baozhong Tea of high quality, but there was only enough left for two small sips. After first sip, we were told that one of them was much more expensive than the other, and then asked which one we liked. We took the second sip and picked one, saying that it was a bit more fragrant, and were met with a scowl and a sigh. It was the most honest facial expression we've seen in ages. The expression above was probably 10 minutes after that moment, but still holds some of the humor and angst!
